Title: Magnet Squirrel Stuffie!
Post by: jillybeans on March 07, 2012 11:30:07 AM
Man, I've been slacking!  I've been meaning to post pictures of a couple items of a swap package I sent off, and I'm finally getting to it!  I made this for my partner, goldfishpollywog, in the One Smallish Stuffie with a Function swap!


A hairclip collecting squirrel!  He is made of fleece, has a giant super strong magnet in his belly and stuffed with some plastic pellets to keep him standing up and polyfil.

I'm usually pretty 2-d with the patterns that I make up, but this time, its 3d!  But, he ended up being a little fattier than I was going for, but still cute (I think).

Some different angles:


And with the tag I sent with him:

"Hi there!  Here is your new squirrel friend!  He decided to give up his outdoor life to come live inside with you to help you out.  He has an unusual ability to attract metal objects, like hair clips!"  In the second photo he demonstrates the strength of the magnet in his belly.  It can hold up the thick cardstock with a hair clip!  hehe

Thanks for looking!

Thanks everyone for your kind words!  <3

It was the base for this weird magnet cat lady someone gave me a long time ago, where you have the lady and all these metal cats that you can put all over her.  It was cluttering up my shelf and collecting dust, so my husband suggested I use it.  I had bought some strong magnets at JoAnns, but they were just not cutting it.

Kuddos to husband for thinking of it, he is the most awesomely useful squirrel ever, opens cabinets, keeps bobby pins and saves my feet from needle pricks!
